On August 25th, right here on the “Top Performance” blog, I announced the formation of the International Center for Clinical Excellence. As anyone who has been reading my recent posts or publication knows, my work is evolving; specifically, putting prior research on the common factors, measurement of outcome and alliance, and feedback to work in helping diverse providers improve their effectiveness and the services they offer consumers.
Since the announcement, my colleagues and I have been busy at work creating the ICCE web platform. Based on the latest Web2.0 technology, the site is specifically designed to support clinical excellence through creating virtual clinical networks, groups and clinical communities where clinicians can be supported in eveloping clinical excellence. We are in the second round of beta-testing right now and are expecting to go live in a very short while. So, stay tuned! And if you haven’t already done so, please visit the ICCE site and register. There’s no obligation or cost, and you’ll also be among the first to know when the site is officially lanuched.
In the meantime, I wanted to call attention to the talented and diverse group of clinicians who will be working with the ICCE as “Associates” and “Trainers.” Included among them are representatives from every discipline within behavioral healthcare (psychology, psychiatry, social work, marriage and family therapy, addictions, criminal justice) and from countries all over the globe. They are: William Andrews, Susanne Bargmann, Jim Walt, Reg Fleming, Cynthia Maeschalck, Michael Clark, Alan Scheuermann, Rob Axsen, Stephen Michael, William Plum, Bill Robinson, Michael Hutchison, Jason Seidel, Michelle Sanders, Von Borg, Dave Nylund, Magnus Johannsen, Dave Green, Gunnar Lindfeldt, Gun Eva Langdahl, Wendy Amey, Luci Doppler, Megan Boylan, Melissa Newland, Amanda Pardue, Flip Van Oenen, Mark Crouzen, Frank Asmus, Dee Dee Stout, and Robbie Babins-Wagner. Consistent with the latest web 2.0 technology, each of these ICCE Trainers will have be blogging, uploading short, instructional videos and other content, and providing supervision and consultation to ICCE members.
Membership is easy, by the way, and free. For now, just register online and we’ll notify you when the site goes live. Then you can enter, create your own professional profile and begin tapping into the international network of providers and experts that make up the ICCE community.
